A Slaver Abandoned. Nassau N.P., more on the slaver abandoned and run ashore at Abaco. About 300 slaves out of a total of about 400 were rescued and brought to Nassau, mostly young children and about 60 women; all naked, suffering from scurvy and hunger. Only a few of the crew could speak English, and from them they learned they were running away from what they thought was a U.S. Steamer to that Island and forced to ground after a gale took most of their sail. The Captain and Mate are not yet found, although, they say the captain cut his throat the first day, and the mate shortly after was drowned. They had been at sea for 36 days.
Pensacola Observer-- It is currently reported on the streets, and with some faith, too, we believe that Medlock, the notorious scoundrel, of whom everyone in these parts is familiar with the crimes, has finally been captured in the State of Alabama, and is at the present time on his way to this State.

A large number of men, the first citizens of the State, were in Dallas ready to lend assistance to quell any disturbance that might occur.
--Three negro men, the leaders in the insurrectionary plot, were executed at this place on Tuesday evening. One of them, Pat Jennings, was the man who applied the torch to the town of Dallas, and one fo the most prominent of those who were engaged in the work. Sam Smith--another, and a preacher--was a hardened old scoundrel; and the third, old Cato, has always borne a bad charactor in the county. They were taken out of jail, escorted to the place of execution by the military, and in the presence of a large concourse of people expaited their crimes as justice demanded. They betrayed no discomposure in view of the awful fate before them. Pat positively refused to say anything, and died with as much indifference as if he had been about his ordinary occupation. With unparalleled nonchalance he retained his chew of tobacco in his mouth, and died with it there. They hung about twenty minutes, Pat dying very hard, and the other two without a struggle-- the former by asphyxia, and the two latter by dislocation of the cerivical vertebrea.

A Letter from Col. Lee, In this connection the following letter from Col. Lee, in command of the Department of Texas, will be found interesting:
Letter from Col. Lee.
Headquarters Department of Texas, San Antinio, July 10, 1860.
Colonel: I have the honor to state for the information of the Secretary of War, that the officers on the Rio Grande report everything to be quiet on that frontier; and since their communications of 1st June, at which time all was quiet, even rumors from the other side of the river, have ceased.
I do not think it necessary longer to expose to the diseases incident to that region, at this season, more troops than may be actually requisite, and propose to withdraw from Fort Brown one of the companies of the 1st Artillery, and from the river two of the companies of the 2nd cavalry.
After the withdrawal of these three companies there will be at Fort Brown two companies of artillery, (including light battery "M" 2nd Artillery,) two companies 2nd cavarly on the river between Brownsville and Ringgold Barracks, and two companies of the 8th Infantry at Ringgold. At the posts on the river above, the troops will not be diminished, but will be increased on the arrival of the 3rd Infantry.
I have authorized Major Hunt, on the approach of yellow fever to the vicinity of Fort Brown, to remove the garrison to some eligalbe camp in the interior, and to leave a guard for the protection of the public property at the fort.
I have received intelligence of the arrival of Colonel Booneville, with three companies of the 3rd Infantry, in the neighborhood of Fort Lancaster.
I am, very respectfully, your obedient Servent,
R. E. Lee. Bv't Col. Comd'g Dep't.
To Col. S. Cooper,
Adj't Gen'l U.S.A., Washington City, D.C.
